Shouting at clouds.

     “I don’t mean to go all language nerd on you, but I just legit adverbed legit, verbed adverb, and adjectived language nerd.” –Randall Munroe*

Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-11-07) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

This was my one-hundredth show just for KNYO. I think it turned out rather well. Kay Rudin showed up and knocked on the storefront door a little after one a.m. and we talked about teeth, among other things. (Slightly uneven mic level.) Um, Alex Bosworth. King Collins. A psychological exegesis of Frankenstein’s monster. Late in the show: My Grandmother, the Poisoner from Vice.com, and even yet more. A long show, as they go, and some catchy music.

Further, here are some links to interesting not necessarily radio-useful items that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

Miracles.

Time-lapse balloon fiesta. (Link sort of fixed by now going to an orgy of hot-air balloon videos.) (Thanks, Kim Townsend, for pointing out that it wasn’t right before.)

Balloons of Brazil. The videos are amazing. Also the sound. “I told ya, Mike!”

And a professional straightener. For the weird fad of everyone dressing alike to be in the club.
